Nurture First’s work started in Kenya, where a dedicated team has conducted a rigorous systems mapping exercise in Mombasa, Kisumu, and Murang’a counties. The team held site visits, interviews, and focus groups with parents and HBCC providers to understand the current context and key challenges. Based on these learnings, Nurture First established strategic partnerships with national and county governments, as well as local Community-Based Organizations (CBOs), to design and deliver learning interventions at scale.

With local CBOs and governments, we are piloting 8 learning interventions across 3 Kenyan counties which will inform scale strategies in Kenya and globally

Pilot Description Country
Mombasa Kisumu Murang'a
Quality Improvement Roadmap Develop HBBC quality indicators and identify a non-punitive, needs-based, improvement road map (integrating access to trainings and other government / NGO services)
Provider Support Networks Support HBCC Providers to form networks to increase representation and access to support services
HBBC Provider Recognition Increase HBCC recognition and support by registering HBCC providers to country databases, outlining key information and where support is needed
Government Capacity Building Shift government mindsets through workshops and trainings to ensure stronger understanding of the HBCC challenge and their role in supporting quality improvement
Kitchen Gardens Set up kitchen gardens to support nutrition needs of the children in HBCCs, and work with the government to involve HBCC providers in their feeding programs
Elimu Fund Increase funding/ in-king support from diverse funding streams, including public reserves (eg, investment cases, develop pipeline of funding, budget allocations)
Family Strengthening Strengthen families' abillity to provide nurturing care to their children via community groups, trainings on parenting and choosing childcare, and mental health support
VSLAs to Hire Providers Leverage existing Village Savings and Loan Associations (VSLA); use pooled savings from VSLAs to pay HBCC providers from their community

The learning interventions began in October 2023 and will run until December 2024. Learnings from these interventions will then be replicated in other counties in Kenya, as well as other countries around the world.
